Since the arrival of COVID-19 in the U.S., many patients and families find themselves “scared sick” when the smallest of symptoms arise. Is it a cold? Is it the flu? Or could it be….COVID-19? If we are being honest, sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference without a proper medical evaluation and diagnostic testing. In today’s environment - I’m sure you encounter parents who feel stuck and unsure of what to do - they want to help their child feel better but aren’t sure of the right next steps with the symptoms.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) urged parents early in the pandemic to weigh the risk of exposure to COVID with the benefits of scheduling well visits and immunizations. AAP has since updated their guidance and are encouraging families to get their children up to date with any missed vaccines and reiterating the importance of in-person visits whenever possible and certainly as a follow up to any telehealth visits that have occurred.
The great news is with COVID-19 cases on the decline, families are now more comfortable to seek appropriate help by visiting their pediatrician's office when their child is sick which means more kids getting the care they need.
The common cold, flu and COVID-19 are all contagious respiratory illnesses caused by different viruses. While some are more contagious than the other and some likely to make you sicker than the other, they all present with common symptoms that can easily be mistaken for one or the other. Shared symptoms across the three in varying degrees include fever, fatigue, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, and headaches. Throw in strep throat and seasonal allergies and you have a whole new level of overlapping symptoms to further the anxiety of parents with symptomatic children. The Mayo Clinic has a symptom check that compares the symptoms of COVID-19 to the cold, flu and seasonal allergies, in a quick and easy to read chart.
We all know the steps to reduce our chances of becoming ill. Frequent and thorough hand washing, covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when coughing and/or sneezing, physical distancing by limiting contact with people who are sick, and of course everyone’s new favorite, wearing a mask.
Antibiotics only work on bacterial infections and are no match for treating a cold or the flu. Each of the above are treated primarily by addressing the symptoms with OTC medications, like acetaminophen and ibuprofen, and allowing the body to heal naturally through rest and intentional hydration.
Same Active Ingredient as Children’s Tylenol
Genexa Kids’ Pain & Fever provides temporary relief from a range of symptoms, including mild to moderate muscle aches and pains, headache, fever and sore throat - all common symptoms of cold, flu, and COVID-19 in children.
Unfortunately, some of the synthetic ingredients in other medicines can cause digestive issues and other health problems. That’s why we only use clean inactive ingredients that are gluten-free, non-GMO, and certified vegan.
Offering your patients samples of Kids’ Pain and Fever is a step in the right direction of cleaning up the medicine aisle, a long overdue necessity! This medicine contains the same active ingredient as found in Tylenol. But made with organic agave syrup instead of sucralose.
